Here's the story behind Microsoft's new Windows 10 desktop wallpaper Just like every time the company releases a new operating system, users will be treated to a new special desktop wallpaper.
The new Windows 10 logo will feature the classic Windows logo but the logo will be made out of light as Microsoft used lasers, projectors and some camera mapping to create the effect.

Microsoft's Windows 10 will be available on July 29th.

It would seem that these folks are so "Wowed" by the Glitz that they aren't aware that the Windows 10 roll-out will compromise the Security of every Window$ Computer World-wide, and all under the guise of Security, Convenience, and Innovation.

Make NO Mistake Your Security Software Can't help. Even Full-On Encryption might be compromised in the process.

I Watched Microsoft's Executives display the Flaw during a 3+ hour presentation to 23000 IT Pros.

In testing my theory it proved to be a 5 second hack for me, a relative novice with LIMITED IT Skills. There are much more driven and dedicated Hackers in this world who will NOT be trying to warn you as I am.

Feel free to hide your head in the sand or Defend "Poor old Microsoft", it's no skin of my nose.

It's an MS Operating System, I expected their to be security flaws; there has been on every Windows release. The easiest solution would be in this case; dual boot OS on separate HDDs, so that while using Win 10 say for gaming benefits, keep it offline. That said, how many gamers would even care about their security, privacy, etc to do that for the sake of online multi-playing? Not many, so basically you get what you pay for (or in some cases with Win 10, what you don't pay for). It'd be wise to say to at least wait for SP1 before primarily using Win 10: but to each their own.

I agree with all follow-ups!

LarryJP's comment is a typical 'newbie-style' comment.

Meritless!


Win10 is a merge between 7 and heavily taking from 8. Both are rather secure and frankly you're clueless for siting said "compromised security" that Microsoft is not only aware of but instructing others about it.



And what an uninteresting video!!!

Senior Members . . . WOW,I'm Impressed, NOT ! My My what big EGOs you have. NOT as big as those at Microsoft though. Which is exactly the reason they "Displayed", NOT "Instructing others about it", the security Flaw without realizing it was one.

While I may be a "Newbie" to this forum the same does not hold true for computing. I've been Dual Booting since Ubuntu 5.04 was first released and repairing M$ screw-ups for my customers since 2005.

The reason I remain Vague on M$'s Security Flaw is that I DON'T Work for them nor do I give a (Bleep) if their system gets taken down.

Chances are that even if I were to edit the 3+ hour video down to the critical 30 seconds you kids probably couldn't comprehend the series of M$'s events/actions/programs already in place which, when combined with this "New Flaw", increases the magnitude of severity about ten thousand fold.

Here's a news flash for ya, I don't work for you either. There is adequate info in my above posts for you to research it yourselves. (HINT: a 3+ hour presentation by Microsoft Execs. to 23000 IT Pros . . . and it's about W-10) Rest assured I won't be holding my breath with the expectation any of you will attempt to become enlightened without someone Spoon-Feeding it to you !

And this is why AfterDawn desperately needs moderators. Or, on the flipside, maybe this is why they all quit.

Larry - You are over the top on your last comment not even worth quoting. Don't assume all Senior members on this site have less knowledge than you, and only one of us asked you to upload a vid. You said our Ego is big, but look at yourself.

How is my EGO so big when all I did was suggest people dual-boot and not put Win X online until security measures are fixed? Considering there is only 2 other senior members that left comments, you come off as a whining a-hole. If you don't feel appreciated because your comment was criticized, then here's a thought: get over it. It doesn't matter what forum you post on, people will always find a way to criticize another, it doesn't mean you should be taking everything personally. (Though I agree you shouldn't have to upload your own personal experience to prove anything when the flaw you went on about is already on the net.)

No need to spoon feed all that was required was a link to what you were referencing in your 1st post,that would be the norm wouldn't it *shrugs*
